What To Expect During The Solar Panel Installation Process

Domestic solar panels are a great way to make your home more environmentally friendly whilst cutting down on your energy bills. These installations are designed to convert the sun’s energy into electricity, which can be used to power your property. This reduces your reliance on fossil fuels, where any energy you don’t use can be fed back into the national grid to help decarbonise the whole country.


The solar panel installation process is designed to be straightforward, where there are just a few steps between requesting a survey and generating your own electricity. Read on to find out all about the installation process, with a look at how a solar panel team will typically proceed once you’ve got in touch.

Surveys & Design

Once you’ve made initial contact with a solar panel company, you will likely receive a quoted estimate on how much the process will cost. This will be followed by an extensive survey of your property, where an engineer will take a look at your home to see what kind of installation you require. Your team will then draw up design plans for how your solar panels should look.

Panel Installation

Once you have approved of the design plans, your team can then proceed with the solar panel installation. They will source all the required materials on your behalf which will be delivered to your site. The installation team will then set about fitting an appropriate mount onto your roof or outbuilding, upon which the panels will sit.


Once the panels have been fixed to your roof, your experienced team will then set up the inverter system that allows a panel installation to generate usable electricity. You will also be connected to a solar panel metre and to the national grid, so you can keep an eye on your energy production.

Testing & Maintenance

Before your installation team leaves you to it, they will conduct a series of tests to ensure that your solar panels are working safely and correctly. They will also recommend that you book in for a scheduled service or maintenance check up to make sure that your installation continues to function properly.
